Shelter and Hope for Farm Animals

We provide a home, a safe shelter, for unwanted farm animals. We also provide a compassionate environment where the animals are respected and can live a life free of fear.

Education Through Experience

A large part of changing people’s attitude towards farm animals lies in education through interaction. Very few have had the opportunity to connect with the animals they find on their dinner plates.

    In a perfect world all farm animals would live like this. They are wonderful and I cannot thank them enough for taking in the young rooster I found in a parking lot. Now he will grow up safe, happy and loved!

    Had an amazing experience at the Florida Rescue Farm Sanctuary with Kelly and Glen. What they are doing there is incredible, and the world needs more people like them. They are two of the nicest, genuine, and most hospitable people around. They have so much knowledge and fun stories to share about the animals and what it really takes to care for them. You know the animals have a good home there. If you are in the area and have the chance, I highly recommend reaching out to them for a visit to see the good they are doing, volunteer and donate if you can, and gain some real life lessons to help raise awareness.

How you can help

Meet the residents

Visitors and Volunteers

We love to have people visit the farm and we give private tours on Saturdays and Sundays. Tours start at 9:30 and usually take 1-2 hours. We are not like a traditional petting zoo type experience. Most of our animals free-range during the day so you may be approached by a cow or goat looking for a scratch behind the ears! Much of the experience is observing and interacting with the animals in their natural environment.

We recommend volunteers visit first so they can meet the animals and see our process. There's always lots to do and we truly value our volunteers.

We are closed to visitors during the summer but we start giving tours again in October. You can set up your tour date/time via email at and you are also very welcome to call us at 941-209-9558 to chat about the sanctuary and set up a time to visit.
